Open line and diamond jubilee

Posted By on Sat, Jun 9, 2012 at 4:02 PM

It takes a while for the packet ships to reach the New World, so some friends are just now hearing about and celebrating the queen's diamond jubilee. We'll join the party in a show of Allied solidarity. The Yanks are coming.

Otherwise, over to you.

UPDATE: I got an e-mail with details on how you can support a stronger state ethics law and make a little money collecting signatures, too. Read on:

Regnat Populus Canvassers!

Better Ethics Now (the committee founded by Brent Bumpers to financially assist the Campaign Finance and Lobbying Initiated Act of 2012) in now offering 75 cents a signature for all sigs dated June 9th and later. Tell your friends! Tell your family! This is a matter of simple math if we can get enough canvassers in the next 3 weeks. If you would like to make some money doing what you believe in:

1) Go to www.thepeoplerule2012.com and sign in under “Volunteer to canvass” if you have not already done so.

2) Email David Couch (dacouch@aristotle.net) who is overseeing the “paid volunteers” and let him know how many signatures you can commit to by July 1st.

a. 1000=$750

b. 750=$563

c. 500=$375

d. 250=$188

3) You can pick up petitions at McMath Woods P.A., 711 West Third St.,Little Rock, AR 72201
and David Couch's Law office,Prospect Bldg, Suite 228,1501 N. University Ave. , LR, 72207.

Monday thru Friday 9-4pm. Anyone can also sign the petitions, get them notarized for free and drop off petitions at either location. If these locations are not convenient for you, when you sign in to canvass, please indicate in the comment section how many petitions you would like mailed to you. (20 sigs per petition). Or email info@thepeoplerule2012.com if you need petitions mailed to you.

4) You can get paid when you turn your petitions sheets in at the above locations and we will also be at US Pizza at 2710 Kavanaugh Boulevard in Hillcrest, LR across from Dam Good Pies on Saturdays, June 16th and 23rd from 11:30-1:30 with pizza and notaries for all. Any petitions mailed to Regnat Populus 2012, PO Box 1087, Little Rock, AR 72203-1087 with sigs dated June 9th or later will be mailed a check for 75cents a sig. to the return address.

5) We will reimburse 40 cents for mileage if you get 50 or more signatures at a venue that requires you to drive out of your way. If you are interested in canvassing full time and would like to assist in collecting at needed locations/counties, contact dacouch@aristotle.net .

6) If you are unable to or not interested in canvassing for money, you can still help us greatly by spreading the word to friends, family, and anyone that might have children or students on summer break that need work. This is also something they could put on a resume!

We can do this if we can get 100 canvassers to volunteer to work on this for the next 3 weeks. I will keep you posted as to the numbers. It is simply a matter of spreading the word and getting this # of feet on the ground. I had 35 people at US Pizza today that want to work hard these next 3 weeks. I know there are more of you out there. Please let us know. 3 weeks of really hard work can turn into the catalyst for untold political change.

With your help, we can make Arkansas’ motto, “Regnat Populus” a reality. The People Rule!

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
